A "Game of Thrones" director of photography who has worked on some of the biggest episodes of the series said Season 7 has more "showstopping major episodes" than any previous season.

Sounds like they put Burger King on the Iron Throne -- "whoppers" for everyone!

Robert McLachlan talked to Deadline about GoT while discussing his role as DP for "Westworld" and "Ray Donovan." McLachlan has been director of photography for six episodes of "Game of Thrones" so far -- "The Rains of Castamere," "Mhysa," "Oathkeeper," "First of His Name," "The Dance of Dragons," and "Mother's Mercy" -- and his work will be seen in Season 7 for the fourth and fifth episodes.

Here's the tail end of his Deadline interview, when they ask about his role in the new season of GoT:

Where are you in the process with the new season of Game of Thrones?

"I wrapped up just before Christmas, and then they did some CG component work and some green screen work in the new year, after I'd had to come back to Ray Donovan, Season 5.

Season 7 is going to be fantastic. We did a showstopping, pretty epic scene in Europe just before I came back, and it's really going to be great.

I don't know the facts and figures, but they only did seven episodes this year, but I think their budget's probably the same, so I think you're going to see, whereas before, we'd have one or two showstopping major episodes per season, this season, probably at least half of them are whoppers. They're not going to disappoint."

We'll take it! It is known.

Yesterday, Entertainment Weekly reported that Season 7 set a new record for stuntmen set on fire, which sounds like good news for Team Dany, but we'll see.

"Game of Thrones" Season 7 premieres Sunday, July 16 on HBO.
